There's nothing cooler than an old guitar that shows its years. The paint is chipped straight through to the wood and it's long ago lost its gleam, but the sound only seems to improve as it ages.
Scott H. Biram's guitar is a perfect example in this image by Gabriel Carbajal, taken during a show on March 13 at the Echoplex. Carbajal used a Nikon D5100 with a Nikkor 18-300 f/3.5-5.6 lens to make the image.
